Product Overview

Introducing one of crime fiction''s most legendary detectives, and greatest writers, to America
The Argentine army''s "Dirty War" disappeared 30,000 people in six years and the last thing Pepe Carvalho wants is to investigate another vanished person, even if that missing person is his cousin. But blood proves thicker than a fine Mendoza Cabernet Savignon even for a nihilistic gourmand like Pepe.
Once there, he quickly learns that "Buenos Aires is a beautiful city hell-bent on self destruction" and he''ll have to confront the traumas of Argentina''s past head on if he wants to stay alive, and find his cousin.
The Quintet is a moving psychological travelogue inhabited by boxers, scholars, seductive semioticians and Borges and infused with the tango, music, literature and, as always, divine cuisine.
